Hi guys, can you’ll share your investment stories here (when did you start, profit/losses, philosophy, lessons learned etc.). I need to start investing so wanted to learn from your experiences.

I just invested things that I use and believe in. Costco wal mart visa chase etc. made 900k in profits since 2004


Start with industries that you know the best/most interested in. I read a lot stuff in the tech industry so I started buying nvdia stock at 90 and Netflix at 200, and just kept buying, now Nvidia is at 270 (280 last week) and Netflix at 350. I also put down another 90k in a rental property in a raising market far from where I live. I lost a few thousands when I first started by buying Tesla at near its peak. All I did back then was buying blindly. You should start reading few books for the basics before deciding how you want to invest your money.


Low-fee index funds and ETFs. Start early and contribite as much as possible. Put compounding interest to work for you


Started investing in 2011, biggest hits were AMD, NVDA, JPM, public storage, bitcoin, and UAL at various points in time. One piece of advice, take investors who started during the recession with a grain of salt. It didn’t take much foresight to do well from 2009-current. I don’t buy index funds with managers who only started in this period

Endometriosis question - had an endometrial ablation. They removed endometriomas from my uterus but there’s also some on my sacrum/pelvic cavity that she couldn’t get. We are looking into another surgeon that specializes in nueropevology so another surgery is possible. But we are looking into Orlissa and Lupron to stop the growth. I’m hesitant about both medications because I have major depression. Does anyone take these? And what is your experience? I take Prozac and I have the Mirena IUD.
